Our Vision

We envision a world where every student’s potential is valued and higher educational aspirations are supported and invested in.

The Problem

The average student only receives
38 minutes of college counseling.

The counselor-to-student ratio is 1:466.

Counselors are tasked with managing heavy caseloads of students with complex educational

and day-to-day needs.

Students need additional guidance and support.

 

Students from backgrounds historically underrepresented in higher education

have the greatest unmet need.

Our Solution

We bridge income and economic mobility gaps by providing easily attainable college access

guidance and support for all.

"Step Ahead Scholars has been a great help from my junior year to my senior year. They helped me perfect my college essay and provided me with valuable information about the college application process. Without this program, I would have overlooked essential parts of the college application process."
